&Juice Co. has three locations around town and has a fantastic variety of 100 percent vegan juice blends as well as allergen-friendly (gluten-free/nut free, seed-based alternative) options in Columbus. I was positively impressed by their brunch at their Italian Village/4th Street location this past weekend.

If your idea of brunch includes a gluten-free waffle, a grilled cheeze sandwich, an Italian style marinara chickpea-based “meatball” sub, a carrot and lox bagel, or a supercharged infusion of fresh juice, this place is for you. Brunch happens every other weekend.

They have a variety of toasts, too: avocado, hummus, deviled “egg” (tofu) salad and an ever-changing list of specials. All produce is 100 percent source identified organic, most coming from within 20 miles – and they are a minority woman-owned business.

Only one smoothie has honey that can be substituted for agave. This is a great, open space with an inviting clean atmosphere, community seating, and peaceful music in the background.

Great vegan community events are coming up in September! Saturday, September 1 is The Official Animal Rights March of Columbus 2018, happening at 12:00 pm starting at Studio 35 on Indianola Avenue. You’ll find out about other activist events at the March.

On Saturday, September 29, Columbus Vegan Meetup is holding our 2nd Bonfire Potluck BBQ Picnic with volleyball and other outdoor activities family fun, until the sun goes down, then adults can cut loose.

The next day, don’t miss It’s All Natural doing their Fall Pop-up Market on Sep 30.
